Does anyone happen to know which daily newspaper, if any, VN might have read while at Cornell in the late 1950's? Would it have been the Syracuse paper? Binghamton? Ithaca itself? I'm trying to track down where VN might have read about ice chunks falling from the sky (see "PF"). The Syracuse Herald-Journal reported the case of Edwin Groff (farmer from Bernville, PA) on July 31, 1957, though this appears to have been a wire story that was picked up by papers throughout the country. Where was VN at the end of July 1957?
